Mark Edwards: With contract extension, Saban keeps going and going and going and going ...

Alabama vs. LSU

Alabama coach Nick Saban has led the Crimson Tide to six national titles.

The University of Alabama announced recently that Nick Saban has agreed to a contract extension through the 2028 season, and by now, is anyone seriously doubting he won't coach every year of the deal?

Unlike coaches who regularly sign long extensions even though there's no way they'll coach that long, Saban is different. He's 69 now and will turn 77 during the 2028 season, but all those years don't look the same on Saban as they do on other coaches.
